What Is ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’? 

RuPaul’s Drag Race is a beloved reality competition show that positions drag queen superstars against each other, competing in a series of challenges and performances for the ultimate crown presented by RuPaul himself. RuPaul – as Jimmy Fallon hilariously found out – is the queen of drag and is one of the most recognizable performers in the drag arena. 

Hosting RuPaul’s Drag Race since 2009, RuPaul and the show’s creative team has been nominated for a staggering 39 Emmy Awards, taking home 24 over the years. The show has launched impressive careers for the drag queen competitors, with names like Trixie Mattel and Katya becoming household names.

Originally confined to the clubs of New York City in the 1980s and 1990s, drag performance has become far more mainstream in the past decade, in part thanks to RuPaul’s Drag Race and the access the show has to millions of viewers across the world. The show has since launched multiple successful iterations, including Drag Race Canada, Drag Race France, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars and more.
